Chirag Paswan hits back at JD(U) after being blamed for its decline

Former Lok Janshakti Party chief Chirag Paswan on Sunday hit back at Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's JD(U), which has accused him for its own debacle in the 2020 assembly polls. Paswan came out with a flurry of tweets in response to allegation of Chirag model at work by JD(U) president Rajiv Ranjan Singh alias Lalan at a press conference here. I practise politics of positivity and do not represent any model. Those who had engineered infights are now themselves faced with internal strife.

PFI's plan to make India a 'Muslim nation' is not a joke, many districts have become 'Islamic'

New Delhi: The big revelation was made after the arrest of five people belonging to the radical outfit Popular Front of India (PFI) from Patna in Bihar. In fact, the PFI is working on 'Mission 2047' to make India a fully Islamic nation. For this, the PFI has prepared a plan in four stages. In such a situation, there is a lot of debate on the news channels about it, in this order, during a TV debate, political analyst Ashwini Upadhyay told in which states of the country there has been a demographic change. He said in which districts the population of Muslims has increased. During the debate, when the anchor said that India is a Hindu-majority country, its borders are becoming Muslim-dominated. The PFI's plan is to create a plot to create a corridor that will pass directly into Pakistan from India. During this time, the anchor also said that the PFI's 2047 report also states that 10 per cent of Muslims are enough to make the majority (Hindus) sit on their knees and if 10 per cent of Muslims are associated with the PFI, then no onecan stop India from becoming a Muslim country by 2047. On the anchor's statement, political analyst and lawyer by profession, Ashwini Upadhyay, said, In 2017, when I filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL), I had said that 5 crore infiltrators have entered the country. If we talk, district-wise, the demography of 14 districts of Bengal has completely changed and the demography of 9 districts of Assam has changed.'' Upadhyay further said, There has been a major demographic change in 4 districts of Jharkhand, 6 districts of Bihar and 14 districts of Uttar Pradesh. He claimed that there has been a demographic change in Kutch and Bharuch in Gujarat as well. In Uttarakhand, the demography of the area around Uttarkashi has changed and all this is happening with the whole plan. For this, infiltration is being carried out rapidly.'' Ashwini Upadhyay further said, All this is happening in such a way that in the field where you do not put a fence, the stray animals will come and sit there, in the house where you will not put the boundary, the stray dogs will come and sit there. Similarly, if the border fencing will not be done in a good way, then obviously, the infiltrators will enter there. Especially when infiltrators are being infiltrated into India with a plan. Buses from Bengal, like tourists, come out of Bengal, which goes to Ajmer, Dwarka, and Rajasthan and gets vacated and return empty from there, the infiltrators are spreading to every nook and corner of the country in the same way.
